Sharon Osbourne just revealed that she had a psychiatric breakdown and was hospitalized in a mental health facility last year.
During the season premiere of The Talk, the 63-year-old host explained that in May of 2015 she suffered from mental health issues that left her unable to speak or comprehend anything.
“I had a complete and utter breakdown. I woke up in Cedars Sinai hospital and probably for three days, I knew nothing,” she admitted.
Sharon added, “My brain just shut down on me. My brain just totally fused, and I couldn’t cope with anything. My family put me into a facility, and in this facility, they diagnose you, there’s therapists, there’s psychiatrists and you do a lot of group therapy.”
She went on to explain that her breakdown was triggered by overworking herself but she now wants her experience to help someone else.
“I feel now that I have got a grip on the problem that I have and I’m in control. It doesn’t control me…And if I can help somebody else along the way, I would feel great to give whatever advice to help somebody else…If you have a bad leg, you tell everybody you have a bad leg. I just have a bad head,” Sharon said.
“They’re working on it,” the couple’s son Jack recently told SiriusXM. “You know, they’re trying to rein it in. They’ve been together for so long and this isn’t their first rodeo.”
He added, “Hey, listen, there’s no perfect marriage in this world. I mean, look, we’ve got two presidential candidates, one’s on his third marriage and, well, we know what happened with the Clintons, so need we say any more?”

“He’s been going [to] outpatient for sex addiction for the last three months and after the tour … he goes into inpatient for three months,” she said. “He’s working at it. It’s hard because it affects the whole family and it’s quite embarrassing. … I’m proud that he’s come out and admitted it, finally,” Sharon said on The Talk on Wednesday (August 3).
Sharon still has a sense of humor, though. “[He] should call Tiger Woods for some advice.”
Ozzy Osbourne‘s rep has revealed he has been undergoing “intense” therapy for a sex addiction.
“Over the last six years, Ozzy Osbourne has been dealing with a sex addiction. He is sorry if Ms. Pugh took their sexual relationship out of context. He would like to apologize to the other women he has been having sexual relationships with. Out of the bad comes good. Since his relationship with Ms. Pugh was exposed, Ozzy has gone into intense therapy. Ozzy is mortified at what his behavior has done to his family. He thanks God that his incredible wife Sharon is at his side to support him,” the statement reads (via People).
Michelle Pugh is Ozzy‘s mistress – their four-year affair was exposed months ago after it was revealed Sharon and Ozzy split. Michelle gave an interview detailing their relationship.
“He made me feel like the most beautiful and worshipped woman in the world,” Michelle said. What attracted me to him? Chemistry. We just had it. It’s that indescribable thing in life, and you can’t deny it. And he didn’t.”
“He is a grown man. He is capable of making the decision to be with me. If he has chosen to not be, that is fine. I accept it and move on. But he has been my best friend for the last few years, so of course I am grieving the loss for that. I still love him,” Michelle said. “And I would never exploit the truly personal and private parts of what we had. That’s not me. I’m going to stand tall and proud and say, ‘This is me. I’m not ashamed.’ I fell in love with a man that gave me the love I never knew I could receive.”
After being spotted out together several times over the past few months, the longtime couple have reconciled their differences.
During an appearance on Good Morning America earlier this week, Ozzy explained that everything is on track again.
“No, it’s just a bump in the road. It’s back on track again,” he said. “And we both live happily ever after? I’d like to find the person who wrote that and poke him in the eye with a burning stick. Some days it’s good, some days it’s terrible, some days you just drift apart for a while, but you get back on the horse, you know?”
Ozzy‘s son Jack added, “As a married person myself, marriage is not like, ‘Hey, we’re married, all is good.’ I mean, it’s just life.”
